1) I don't think everyone here would agree D-Lee is worth 10 million per.

2) It's a good idea, but you forgot one important thing: David Lee has to accept the deal. There is absolutely no way, after Lee is really earning his cash this year by playing well, that Lee would agree to a CLUB option. To say he is taking a "slight" risk is understating the facts almost ten fold. Guys get hurt in this league, why on earth would Lee take a one year deal after he earned his money. Some team out there will do better than that for him, and if we lowball Lee like that he will walk.
